Product Review: Shiseido Accentuating Stick in S2 Peach Flush

I have always been a fan of powder blushes because given that I have mostly combination-oily skin, they last longer on me. But sometimes, I just cannot resist something pretty even though it's not in powder form and I made an exception for the Shiseido Accentuating Stick in Peach Flush.



What I like:
- I like the practical yet nice-looking packaging. Still looks sleek, imo.
- It is a very pretty pink-peach shade that has very fine shimmers.
- It is quite pigmented so you only need a light swipe for the color to show up on your cheeks.
- Easy to blend and does not cake even if you used powder foundation under it.
- Texture is creamy but dries to a powder finish.
- Contains 10g of product and you don't need to pile it on so it will take you a long time before finishing one stick.
- Gives a very natural and pretty flush on the cheeks. It somehow gives an iridescent glow.
- Works as a nice base for blushes but since it is pretty pigmented, it is nice to use on its own.
- Does not break me out or cause any allergic reaction.
- Locally available at Shiseido counters.

What I don't like:
- Staying power isn't superb. It stays for about 2-3 hours max on my skin type. May last longer on those with 
dry to dry-combi skin.
- Expensive for Php 1800 or so at Shiseido counters.

Overall rating: 4/5 Even though the staying power is not as great as other blushes, I still love the color so much and how it gives me the glow that I still gave it a 4. The color is enough for me to overlook the not so good staying power and won't mind re-applying since it comes really handy.

Will I buy again? Yes, but only when it goes on sale. :)

Have you tried this blush from Shiseido?

Happy Monday, super awesome peeps! :P

  1. The color is very pretty and indeed perfect for summer, but the staying power isn't good like what you mentioned and i think it looks bagay with fair skinned girls like you hehe. But with that lovely color i think you still snagged a great product:-)

  2. Minakichu, if only the staying power is as good as powder blushes, it would've been a perfect blush! :P

  4. Nic, it's like Orgasm but better. Somewhat a more pigmented and corally version or NARS Deep Throat. :)

  10. Michelle, yeah. I only wish the staying power is much better. But I still like it. :P

    Kim, true. I was there on Friday and the Shiseido items on sale were no good (at least for me). I looked for the sticks and peach flush agad. :D

    Sugar, go get one! :P

  12. Nikki, so true! It gives a sheen rather than looking shimmery. :P
